MAYOR NEEDS A CARPENTER
The city engineering dep't is the
target of much kidding these days.
The dep't supervised the recent
building of a new engine house for
Engine Co. No. 18 at 12th and May
sts. after the 12th st widening forced
the abandoning of the old house.
When the company tried to move in
it was found that the door way had
b.een built so low it would be neces
sary to take the smokestack from
the engine before it could pass
through. Until the engineering-dep't
wakes up it will be necessary to leave
the engine outside the house. Offi
cials of the engineering dep't say they
thought the house was to be used for
the fire insurance patrol.

BULLETS FLY IN BURNHAM
TWO MEN DEAD
The police rifle squad under Lieut.
James Mooney made a fruitless
search early today for the murderous
band of robbers that went through
Burnham and Hegewisch during the
morning hours, leaving two dead
men after a series of holdups.
Spiro Porakis of 13243 Baltimore
av. was one of the men killed; the
other has not been identified. Steve
Cazoras of 13411 Brandon avr was
shot through the abdomen and prob
ably fatally wounded by the marau
ders. Michael Kolan, 13555 Brainerd av.,
told the police that he was held up
by a gang of five vicious-looking
men. They searched him and found
no money, so they beat him up and
let him escape.
The police are suspicious of the
story told by Kolan and ordered him
held. They believe the murddrs may
have resulted from a bitter gun war
that has broken out in Burnham in
anticipation of the election tomor
row in which Johnny Patton, the
"boy mayor," is being fought by Wm.
Wilson, who is backed by the reform
forces. Patton has" the support of
the redlight element. Lieut. Mooney
of the rifle squad and Capt Joseph
Smith are working on the killings.
